NSS Magic @ Lakers!! On Edge of A 10 Game Winning Streak (Again)!!
The Lakers’ are on the edge of a 10-game winning streak for the 2nd time this season. The Lakers 33-7 record is the best in the West and the game against the Magic marks the halfway point of the season. The Magic go into the Staples Center with a 6-13 away to match up with the Lakers’ 16-4. The only bad news is the status of Anthony Davis who will be sitting out another game, but it might be for the best.
Davis will sit out another game and that’s okay, one his health is most important and two the “Kyle Kuzma Show” will continue. Kuzma is shining in the starting line up averaging 24.3 in the last 3 games, that includes the 36 points against the Thunder with LeBron James, Dais and Danny Green all missing in action. Kuzma is showing his value and what he can bring to the team displaying what he can do for the Lakers (and any other team watching) on the offensive side.
The Magic are coming off a win vs the Kings and hoping to keep that momentum going chasing 500. Magic at 19-21 are in the 7th spot of the playoff sitting and hoping to stay ahead of a Nets team that just got Kyrie back. Markelle Fultz have been putting in work with the Magic averaging 11.5 points and 4.5 assist, his production has been slow and steady but trending up.
Dwight Howard, the NEW NEW DWIGHT HOWARD, has been on a different level making all the differences for the Lakers. Howard has scored in double digits in 4 out of the last 4 games, that’s also including a couple shots from 3.
Lakers at home, duh. The scheduled is favoring the Lakers in their handling with the Davis injuries and also it helps that hey are ahead 5 games of the next team, the Utah Jazz.
PS the Utah Jazz are 2nd in the west on a 10 game winning streak of their own.
